His hand is placed on a pedestrian part of Rogi's backside. Missed opportunity IMO.

Re: Rotterdam R1: Nieminen def. Goffin 6-0 6-0

The hatred for David Goffin is absolutely ridiculous. As a big supporter of him, I feel I have to at least attempt to defend him in this case.

Firstly, what does Federer have to do with this? Yes, he likes Federer and perhaps likes him a lot, but why is that sufficient means to bash him? It's just plain stupid and highlights just how limited some of the posters on this website are when it comes to ways they can disrupt proceedings. He most certainly does not play anything like Federer. People might try and tell you he does, but he doesn't. David plays more of a counter-punching game, yes some of the flashy winners are there, but he's inherently less aggressive than Federer and lacks the variety that the Swiss has.

Secondly, yes this was a dreadful performance by Goffin, but we are exaggerating how much if a disaster this is. Maybe he'll take a few days to get over it, but then he'll be bursting to go when it comes to Marseille or Dubai and I expect him to produce a good level again. One bad match doesn't break a season.

Regardless of whether he likes Fed or not, he's still scrawny and weaponless.

He just got double bagelled by Nieminen. Say those words to yourself. Double bagelled. Nieminen. Double bagelled. Double. Nieminen. Bagelled. Double Bagelled by Nieminen. There is no defense, he is going to get a lot of stick for this. That's life son.

Tennis Fucking Sucks


Federer was the pioneer of first-strike all-court tennis. This is the real tennis and the beautiful game. Never forget the beauty of what was tennis. Nadull and Fakervic don't win tennis matches. They simply outlast their opponent with endless grinding and stamina. That is ugly. Beautiful tennis is gone now. Never forget the good days of real tennis.

nah, nobody hates Goffin. People are just goofing around, having fun.
Now, in order to be hated on MTF you need to meet 2 conditions:
1. You need to a really, really good player ... did I say, really good (Fed, Nole, Murray, Nadal come to my mind)
or
2. You can be a mediocre player but if you have a big mouth (controversial personality too), huge ego (which is not backed up by any results), and say stupid sh!t in your interviews, you made it, MT will 'love ya' (Tomic, Janowitcz etc.)

Goffin hasn't met any of these two conditions. He seems like a nice, well behaved guy.

No weapons.

Weak forehand, rally backhand, weak serve.

Clearly a hater. Weak serve? LOL have you seen his first serve percentage recently? Thought not... do your research before making silly posts.
